June TBR

Friday, June 2, 2017

Out of the seven books I shared from last month's TBR, I read four: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Snotgirl, Vol. 1: Green Hair Don't Care by Bryan Lee O'Malley and Leslie Hung, Paper Girls, Vol. 2 by Bryan K. Vaughan, and The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord! Yes, two of them were comic trade paperbacks ... but I would say it's a win since I normally throw my list out the window after reading one book!

This month is going to be insane, so I really should be choosing less books. Here are ten anyway, OH WELL ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'm either out of town or at an all-day event for 15 out of 30 days in June ... if I survive, praise God for sustaining me cause I know it's definitely not of my own effort!!!

This summer is going to be filled with contemporary (as if my whole year isn't already, lol) and I'm planning to revisit some favorites!


Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson // I've heard this one is the majority favorite of out of all the Morgan Matson books! I'm tackling her books in publication order, and I've really enjoyed both Amy & Roger's Epic Detour and Second Chance Summer.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han // I picked up this book around seven years ago when I was in high school at BORDERS! It was one of the first YA books I've ever read, before I even knew what YA was. I didn't continue on in this trilogy, so I'm hoping to do that this summer.

That Summer by Sarah Dessen // I am so conflicted because I want to read Once and For All (it comes out on the sixth!) but I want to read Sarah Dessen's books in publication order first. What do you guys think? If I start with That Summer, I will not be reading Once and For All until next summer :p

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord // This would also be another re-read for me, so it doesn't actually count toward this challenge. But I didn't write a full review for it the first time around, so I'm hoping to do that this time! I'm also very curious to see if my feelings for this book has changed at all.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson // I was planning to start a new fantasy series this month, and Sierra (from @sierraiswriting on Twitter) just happened to mention that she was going to be reading this one for #oldiesYA! This works out really well for me because I own the trilogy so I am PREPARED. Although I really should be continuing on in the Grisha (now Shadow and Bone) trilogy ...


I will definitely be reading Alex, Approximately in June—I just picked up my hold from the library last week. Windfall was an unexpected addition (I want to read Jennifer E. Smith's books in publication order and I've only read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight) but I just thought of a post idea that I want to do! I'm still not sure if I want to save I Believe in a Thing Called Love and When Dimple Met Rishi for July when I have more time ... my library has an option to "freeze" a hold, which I haven't been utilizing since last month, but I like it a lot because sometimes I get click happy and reserve a ton of books that I don't want to read *at that moment*. And then there are other times when I remove a hold and put it back on my account the minute I want to read it but then there's a long wait ... and when it's finally my turn, I don't feel like reading it anymore. Please tell me I'm not the only one like this!!! I also added Wonder to this list because the movie is coming out and I STILL haven't read it :x

What are you going to read in June? If we're reading the same book, let's discuss!
